Tuesday, January 8, 2019 “Shutdowns and Threats”

1 Kings 19:1-2 And Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, also how he had executed all the prophets with the sword. 2 Then Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, saying, “So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I do not make your life as the life of one of them by tomorrow about this time.”
Deadlines and powerless threats. Sounds like the recent government shutdown. Jezebel thought to scare Elijah with her words. She had no legitimate authority or power to do so. Pray that our leaders in Washington will understand their lines of authority and operate within them to bring about resolutions according to the Constitution and the rule of law. This should result in what is best for all Americans.
